3 Cm Less



“How dare you leave this family and walk away?” This is what Reed says to her dead father who in 1972 hijacked a plane and died in the process. Her anger toward him is not very different from the anger which Samia, Surida and Sarah feel toward their mothers who were always too busy fighting the Israeli occupation to be present in their lives.
